Dr. Craig Blomberg is a Distinguished Professor of the New Testament at Denver Seminary in Littleton, Colorado.  He holds a B.A. from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois (with majors in Biblical Studies, Spanish, and Math), an M.A. from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois, and a Ph.D. from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.

Craig is the author of fifteen books and has co-authored or co-edited ten more, along with more than 150 journal articles and chapters in multi-author works.  His books include four on the historical reliability and interpretation of parts or all of the Bible (esp. the Gospels), two on interpreting and preaching the parables, three commentaries (on Matthew, 1 Corinthians, and James), a textbook on Jesus and the Gospels and another on Acts through Revelation, a handbook on exegetical method, and three books on material possessions in the Bible. 

He is a member of the Committee on Bible Translation for the New International Version and of the committee tasked with producing the 35th-anniversary edition of the NIV Study Bible.

On Sunday mornings Craig sometimes preaches or teaches in various churches. On Sunday evenings, he attends Scum of the Earth Church in urban Denver, an outreach ministry to “the right-brained and left-out” young adults of the metro area.

Craig’s wife, Fran, is a retired pastor. She has her Ph.D. in Missiology from the International Baptist Seminary in Amsterdam.  Craig and Fran have two daughters: Elizabeth (Little), who has an M.A. in Christian Studies from Denver Seminary, is married and works as a circuit preacher for the British Methodists in West Sussex, England, where she lives with her British husband, Jonathan, and their son, Joshua; and Rachel, who is studying for her Ph.D. in molecular biology at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. 

The Blombergs love to travel, often combining vacation and ministry opportunities at other colleges and seminaries.  Craig has enjoyed three Broncos’ Super Bowl victories in his thirty-plus years in Denver, but as a native of northern Illinois, his lifelong sports dream came true in 2016 when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.
